Strengthening your ‘Inner Man’

A key strategic approach for implementing a successful results-driven self-care regime, is by ‘strengthening your inner-man’ . Strengthening your ‘inner-man’ means increasing your emotional resilience to tackle and face head-on the challenges which life throws your way. There are several strategies to strengthen the inner man. Over the next few days, we will be focusing on five tools and techniques which you can apply immediately.

Technique Number One: Find the Treasure Within You: Think about your thought patterns and processes. What are you thinking about yourself or your circumstances right now? Is it positive or is it negative? Are you thinking self-critical thoughts about yourself? or feeing self-limiting beliefs? Are you thinking, I should have or shouldn’t have done this or that? Right now, imagine that you see a red traffic stop sign. STOP. Imagine the traffic light turns green, start thinking about or jotting down on a piece of paper, the qualities you find admirable about yourself — even if you only find one thing. Note it down and think about it. 2) What is lovely about you? Don’t overthink it. Write down the first thing that comes to you head. The treasure is there. You have a lovely quality within you. Find it and affirm it. 3) Name one excellent thing you have done? What is excellent about you? You do have excellence within you. The treasure is within you. Find it. What is praiseworthy about you? What praiseworthy thing have you accomplished? You have the treasure within you. Find it. As soon as you have named that lovely, excellent, praiseworthy qualities within you and what you have done — spend some time reflecting on it to strengthen your ‘inner man’.

‘Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent, or praiseworthy — think about these things’ Philippians 4:8
